onebehind: (this is gospel for the fallen ones)
The day Teleios ends in ruin, Dylan closes his shop, The Crystal Card, at noon. While he's not expecting disaster, however, he is expecting guests, and he needs time to prepare, both mentally, not sure how Jack's going to take the fact that he's been lying to him for however long now, regardless of how he took it, back home, at the end of the long con, and physically, food to be cooked and plates laid out. He figures one or the other or both will take him -- well, not six hours, but better to be safe than sorry.

As it turns out, he's right, and when everything is said and done, dinner warming in the oven, waiting, he pours himself a drink, his first of the day, settles down in the chair at the head of the table, and waits for the sound of the Horsemen coming in, downstairs. Locked up or not, he figures they'll manage, either through tricks or simple breaking and entering or maybe, just maybe, through finding the key he left, as part of an inconspicuous puzzle, outside. Old habits die hard and he figures if they find it, it'll be the first clue for Jack, if he doesn't already suspect.

Either way, company will be here soon enough.
